Acting Vice-Chancellor Professor Robert Saint says Flinders has risen to equal 10th in the rankings for Best Universities in Australia 2016.
“It’s a fitting tribute to Flinders in its 50th anniversary year, and timely confirmation of the vision and mission of our newly released Strategic Plan, Making a Difference,” Professor Saint says.
“This impressive performance is a great credit to Flinders’ people, from researchers and academics to professional staff and students, who together are realising our ambition to be internationally recognised as a world leader in research, an innovator in contemporary education and the source of Australia’s most enterprising graduates,” he says.
The Times Higher Education World University Rankings list the best global universities and are the only international university performance tables to judge world class universities across all of their core missions – teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook, employing 13 carefully calibrated performance indicators to provide the most comprehensive and balanced comparisons available.
THE rankings editor Phil Baty says by focusing specifically on the Australian universities that feature in the prestigious rankings, Times Higher Education delivers a better picture of which institutions in Australia are ahead of the game in terms of research excellence, teaching, knowledge transfer and international outlook.
“These are all vital facets for universities that want to compete in what is an increasingly global higher education market place, and the Flinders University should be congratulated on its superb performance,” Mr Baty says.
